Moving Users Folder Created Extra Directory
The main question is:
"Why have I got a folder called D:\Users\change?"
Now the background:
I had previously relocated the major sub-directories in my Users profile
(Desktop, Documents, Pictures etc) to the D drive by selecting the location
tab under properties.
Today I had to reinstall Vista so decided to use the unattended install
option to move the directories completely from the start.
I created a file on a USB stick called Autounattend.xml with the following
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS"
I then put the install disc in the drive and ran the following from the
(where e was the CD and g was the USB).
I was pleased at how easy it was and that I ended up with a nice new install
and with the Users directories completely on the D drive (not just the major
parts of it like before).
The only thing that is bothering me is that I now have an extra directory in
the D:\Users directory called "change"
I didn't create a user called this so I am puzzled at why it exists.
I am wondering if it has anything to do with the existing directories that
were on the D drive when I did the reinstall.
Originally I had:
after the reinstall I created my user called bob and named my pc myPC-Name
and I now have the following
Has Vista put my new user in a different dir instead of the orignal one and
created this change dir as a diff???
I'm a bit perplexed!
